We are excited to open registration for Al Haadi Youth’s first ever residential trip. We aim to bring together the next generation and future leaders of our community, in a relaxed environment where they can thrive in their element and create brotherhood/sisterhood bonds that will flourish for years to come.
The weekend will be a mixture of incredible activities provided by the venue itself, aswell as personal and spiritual development time including discussions/reflections led by experienced Aalim’s & Aalimah’s over a campfire (don’t worry, hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows are on the menu!). There will also be specific sessions aimed at expanding their horizons and mindset, led my Br Mahmood Mawjee, to make the most of the opportunities available to them so they can maximise their potential.
If you would like your child to attend but find it difficult financially, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will deal with it in utmost confidence.

Each participant will experience 4 of the following activities. We are trying to ensure each person has 2 water-based activities and 2 land-based (so bring your hijab friendly swimsuits!)
- Paddle boarding
- High ropes
- Leap of Faith
To get the full camping experience, all youth will be sleeping in tents. Each participant will need to bring their own sleeping bag. The accommodation and washroom facilities have been carefully planned and laid out to ensure there is sufficient space, segregation and privacy between the boys and girls, and the campers and volunteers.
Caldecott Experience are providing us with halal breakfast, lunch and dinner which will be cooked by a professional chef. Meat will be sourced from a Halal supplier. Their kitchen will be deep cleaned for us before we arrive. They have experience in hosting Muslim groups.
The safety of our participants and volunteers is always our highest priority. All land and water-based activities will be led by Action4Youth’s own professionally trained staff. They are also first-aid trained and DBS approved. AHY volunteers will also be first-aid trained and DBS approved.
Action4Youth holds full public liability insurance, which includes gross negligence and wilful misconduct. Although the utmost care and attention will be provided by Al Haadi Youth and Action4Youth, we advise you can take out private personal accident insurance/travel insurance for your child if you wish to do so.
